Run Like a Girl!

a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step…

We’ve reached the $1,000 mark! June 16, 2010

(I’m still waiting for a $150 credit to show up from our volunteer time at the Hibiscus half marathon, but as of 6/16 we are at $1,095 raised for the Leukemia Society this year in memory of my friend John Kark. Yay!)

Aloha friends & family!!

Thanks to your generous donations, I’ve reached the 20% mark – to
date, we have raised over $1,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!!
Earlier this month, we worked at the Hibiscus Half Marathon, earning
over $200 for the charity in a single (very, very early!) morning!

This SATURDAY, I’m planning a garage sale in Makawao, Maui from 8am to
11am to benefit the Leukemia Society. We can still use donations of
gently used items, and if you have a few hours that morning, please
feel free to stop by and shop or to help with manpower…

Tomorrow makes 4 months til race day! My training has been going well
– I actually ran over 8 miles last weekend, which was the longest I’ve
run in months. I’m working hard on getting those miles in, but I need
your help to make my goal of $5,000 this year in memory of my friend
John Kark.

You can make a secure donation on my fundraising page at For other ways to help, including
donating HawaiianMiles, raffle prizes, or attending one of my
fundraisers, please visit

Thank you so much for your continued support! We are making a difference!

Malia =)
